§ Mr. P. OLIVER
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that under various local Acts the right of appeal against street-paving charges given to frontagers is of a more restricted character than the right of appeal given under the Private Street Works Acts, and does not in all cases include the right of appeal on the question of the reasonableness of the charges; and whether he will review the whole position under both public and local Acts with a view to protecting frontagers from excessive charges in respect of street paving?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am not aware that, outside London, there is not a right of appeal on the question of reasonableness. If the hon. Member will let me know what cases he has in mind, I shall be glad to look further into the matter. The general question of private street charges is under my consideration.
